Who wants in on the Google Cloud? That's the next topic.
Those middle school students are in the audience today. Standing ovation from the audience.
Huge applause! Standing ovation from those without laptops on their laps.
And they're all here today, from Texas!
Google is really pushing its more altruistic side.
Seeing some inspirational developer stories here, a team of middle school female devs who wrote an app for a blind student to get around. *sniff*

"Native Office" sounds boring, but let me say, the on-stage demo was fantastic. Open a Word file, edit it without conversion, save it automatically back as a Word file for whomever sent it to you in the first place. Nice, invisible user-centric design work here.
Interesting factoid from video: there are more people using duolingo to learn a second language than people in the entire US school system.
Talking about using Google services at work.
Sundar's voice appears to be getting a bit weak. He's sipping some tea during the video. Stay strong, Sundar! We're almost there.

New editing feature to suggest edits, with easy review and accept.
You can handle a native word file in Google Docs, but save as a word file. "It works seamlessly," Sundar says.
No skydiving, though. It's way too foggy today.
We appear to have entered the catch-all portion of the keynote. Lots of random stuff coming at us fast and quick. Surely they have something fun saved for last, though, yeah?
Native Office editing will be built within Google Docs suite. It will open native Word files--no need to convert into a Google Docs file. Native Office editing will also include review and suggested changes.
You can now use QuickOffice's MS Office editing built into Google Docs
The similarity to Knox is apparent, but Sundar is being rather vague on the details. Remains to be seen exactly what kind of functionality will be offered. Can you disable your work phone at 6:30pm? Gosh I hope so.
Docs, slides, and sheets - another biz application of Google services.
Big shout out to Samsung for its Knox work. It's a new day at Google.
Shoutout to Samsung for contributing Knox, its mobile enterprise security suite, to L.
Data isolation for enterprise security, bulk deployment of apps, no app modification needed. coming to L, but also separately for non-L devices.
With L release, Google is adding set of APIs (for Ice Cream Sandwich and above) to isolate work and personal data, so employees don't need to carry around two phones.
